Public sector entities must report publicly on their performance. Part of their accountability obligations it demonstrates their effective stewardship and responsible use of taxpayer-funded resources.
This audit examined how well the 20 core Queensland departments measure, monitor and publicly report on their non-financial performance.
We assessed the performance information in their Service Delivery Statements from the 2013–14 State Budget papers.
We sought to determine if the non-financial performance information in the budget papers was outcome-based and whether it was relevant and useful, readily understood and actually measured what it claimed to measure.
